Banner & Witcoff is recognized as a top trademark firm in the 2019 edition of World Trademark Review 1000 – The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals. The WTR 1000 focuses exclusively on identifying the leading law firms and individuals in jurisdictions across the globe.
According to World Trademark Review:
“Stalwart Chicago-headquartered boutique Banner & Witcoff registers hundreds of US and foreign trademarks each year and manages more than 12,000 active trademarks – it certainly knows the ins-and-outs of prosecution and how to register rights efficiently. The team makes regular – and victorious – appearances in major litigations too. Speaking of which, Christopher Renk recently scored the winner for Converse in one of the biggest International Trade Commission trademark litigations ever; the case was against Wal-Mart, Skechers and 30 others who violated Converse’s trade dress rights by selling imitations of the Chuck Taylor All Star shoe. Helen Hill Minsker and Richard Stockton also litigate proficiently but double up as portfolio managers. Coming in for particular praise, “Helen makes her extensive experience count in everything she does and is a huge asset to have on side. She is an excellent communicator and devises strategies that make sense from both a legal and business perspective. She’s more like a part of your team than simply an external representative.” Stockton takes care of some prestigious clients, including Schneider Electric whose worldwide portfolio he takes care of.”
